After signing a 6-year deal with the Maple Leafs, former NHLer and sportscaster Nick Kypreos revealed the offer that Chris Tanev rejected from the Dallas Stars.

The Dallas Stars seemed like one of the best NHL teams on paper. Despite their dominating lineup, the team struggled to make it to the Western Conference Finals before losing to the Edmonton Oilers in six games.
"EDMONTON OILERS ARE GOING TO THE STANLEY CUP FINAL

The Edmonton Oilers defeat the Dallas Stars in six games to advance to the Stanley Cup final for the first time since 2006."

However, the team seems to have fallen off even harder after the Stanley Cup Finals ended with Florida victorious. In what seemed a part of their lackluster offseason trading strategy, they granted the Toronto Maple Leafs rights to Chris Tanev, leading to a six-year contract worth $27 million.
"The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that the hockey club has signed defenceman Chris Tanev to a six-year contract. The average annual value of the contract is $4.5 million."

Provided how important Tanev was to the Dallas Stars' defensive strategy, many wondered what the player turned down to move up north. Former NHLer and sports journalist Nick Kypreos revealed that the team offered him $5 million per year but for only half the time Toronto offered.
"The Stars weren't in the same ballpark as the Leafs to entice Tanev to re-sign there. Their best offer was $15 million over three years."

With a much less impressive offer security-wise and a chance to play in his hometown, the choice seems pretty clear for Chris Tanev. Hopefully, the player can perform for Toronto, otherwise the Maple Leafs may later regret this long-term deal.
